They are joined by Western qualifiers of Blues FC, Nailaga FC, Greenstar FC and Service SC

Navuso Barbarians FC from Tailevu/Naitasiri are the surprised qualifiers. They’ve qualified with Raymonds FC from Rewa as the best runners-up out of the three pools.

Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal said the NCC is set to be a thriller.

“The four Southern clubs played well and have worked hard to qualify. Navuso Barbarians FC surprised everyone by qualifying for the finals,” Pal said.

“We’re expecting a tough competition in the finals as all teams are equally prepared.”

Meanwhile, a new winner will be crowned in the NCC on Sunday after defending champions Press FC from Lautoka failed to qualify this year.
